#805: See a robot ballet

10 Jun

Professional ballerinas don’t have to worry about robots taking over their jobs anytime soon.

Still, it was more than a little creepy to see these machines dancing around the stage, playing music, being applauded by the audience.

Even from as far up as the balcony level, I could see we’re already slipping down a dangerous slope.

Laugh all you want about my “absurd” fear of robots taking over the world, but one day you will be laughing with someone you think is a human, talking with someone you think is a human, dancing with someone you think is a human–only to find out it’s a robot.  Only to find out you’re a robot.

Robots doing ballet is only the beginning.
